Episode Quotes

Jake: Hey there, Boyle. How was your weekend?
Charles: Well, actually I got a little sick.
Jake: Oh, really? I'm sorry to hear that, man.
Charles: Yeah, "Bullets over Broadway" was on TV. And I came down with a big ol' Dianne Wiest infection. *silent stares between Jake and Charles* Like "yeast."

Captain Holt: Uh, can I help you, Captain Stentley?
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Oh, hey, uh, did you guys see a black backpack sitting around anywhere?
Captain Holt: I did not.
Jake: No.
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Aww, shoot, this is turning out to be a real cluster-biff.
Jake: Why? What's in the backpack?
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Uh, just some evidence. Do you guys know a drug dealer named Flaco?
Captain Holt: Oh, yeah, he's a big-time supplier, consolidated half the territory in Brooklyn.
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Well, the bag belongs to one of his runners, and it contains, like, a football's worth of cocaine. I'm not good with sizes. And a cell phone.
Jake: And you think that the cell phone might have Intel that could lead us to Flaco.
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: I do now. That's a great theory!

Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: But the bag is missing, so - Hey, how big of a deal is it if I, um, if I never find it?
Jake: I'd say it's a very-
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Ah-uh-uh-uh. Sugarcoat it for me.
Jake: Okay, um, no biggie.
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: Ahh, that is great news. Thank you so much. Hey, if you see something, say something. Oh, that is catchy, huh? It's like, I just made up a hit song.
Jake: Nope, very common police expression.
Captain C.J. Jason Stentley: If you see somethin' say somethin', come on and party tonight.

Jake: This is our chance. If C.J. can't find that evidence, he could be fired.
This could be our way back onto the day shift. Come on and party tonight Wow! It's actually a really catchy song.
Captain Holt: There's nothing to celebrate. Captain Stentley is going to find that evidence because we're gonna help him.
Jake: What? No, this is our chance to undermine him. Come on and party tonight.
Captain Holt: Peralta, we're police officers. We have a duty to protect this city. We took an oath, a sacred oath. What if those drugs end up on the street or a dangerous criminal is set free because of missing evidence?
Jake: [sighs] Okay, you know, you're trying to say it's whatever because you just [indistinct].
Captain Holt: You're fumfering.
Jake: Of course I'm fumfering. Fine, we'll find the bag. Come on and party tonight. Damn it.

Sergeant Jeffords: Hey, guys, department has a new green initiative. We have to reduce energy usage by 15%. That means no more laminating, Santiago.
Amy: Oh, that's fine. It's not the thing that gives me the most pleasure in life. Interacting with other people, that's what gets me going.
